Is there an easy way to burn CDs of shows without the gaps between the songs?

Live shows should always be burned a s "Disc at Once" or DAO. Your CD burner probably defaults to "Track at Once" ot TAO. This leaves a very annoying 2 second gap between songs. You should change this setting before you brun these shows tho Audio CD. Etree.org has a great FAQ about CD-R burning.. It is worth reading.

http://etree.org/faq_cdr.html

If you ask a question like this it might in some cases be helpful to include info on what software and platform (Operating system) you are using... then someone can give you detailed instruction if you need it. (since different software may have slightly different answers)
hope this helps, if not keep asking any new questions that come up. If you read the FAQ first, nobody will mind at all if you keep posting until it's answered.

This forum is googlable, so your question and answer may help someone else later.

Thanks for your help Glenn! I can't seem to find where/how to change the default to DAO... I have Windows XP with the factory installed 9.0 Windows Media Player.

To answer your question directly: Windows Media Player options allow media to be ripped gapless by selecting Format: "Windows Media Audio Lossless". I believe lossless is a format that is gapless. A side effect is that the file sizes when you rip file are rather large.

This is the only way I have found to make Windows Media Player rip gapless.

no problem. I was there too.

I think (I have XP too luckily, and looked over the media player) that windows media player doesn't have that function. (If it DOES support it, please don't sue me, Mr. Gates, sir, I simply could not find the function.)

I use Nero Burning rom, but have used the roxio ez cd creator too. Both work well enough to do anything I've needed. I use nero because it's installed already, but there is a great tool (etree recommends it, thats plenty for me, etree never steered me wrong) called "feurio!" that will do it. Its freeware, nag screen disappears if you register though.

... download and a full 'installation and burning gapless discs' tutorial for feurio is at the link below.

Thank you for the advice. I am running Windows XP and am trying to use Windows Media Player 10 to burn. I do not see an option for Disc At Once.

Do you recommend using a different burning software, or have I just not figured out how to use Windows Media 10?

Thanks again,

Chris

I use ROXIO ezCD creator, and Nero Burning ROM. If you have a burner, you probably have one or the other on a disc that came with your burner or computer.

Almost any good burning program can do disc-at-once.

I only use Windows Media player to play Windows Media files. http://www.etree.org/feurio.html has a tutorial for burning gapless disc-at-once discs

One more thing... I have learned how to burn gapless cd's so the GD live shows burn without the 2 second gap between songs. However, now the entire set burns as 1 track. Is there a way to be "gapless" and still be able to have the ability to forward to specific songs/tracks within a gapless cd?

If you use iTunes, you can set the time gap between songs to zero seconds. itunes is free from apple.

or if you set it to burn Disc-At-One it will do the same thing as well. Depends on what program your using...could you give a little more info?

I am running XP. To burn CD's, I started using the free Furio pgm that was suggested. I have it as "disc at once", but it only creates the one track.

I had this same problem, running XP, yep, using Windows Media player, yep.

Then I realized that my computer did come with the Nero burn program, and there's an easy box to check that eliminates the gap, while keeping all the songs seperated...of course I found all this out after burning 20 CD's with gaps...somebody at a show I'm sure will be happy to get those even with the gaps!

So, do a search of your applications to see if you have this program.

about those 20 CD's with gaps, I was in the same situation.
If you don't want to DL all that again, you can remove the gaps one track at a time with the free CD Wave editor 1.94.8
Which you can download from here >> http://www.cdwave.com
btw, the gap is usually at least 2.1 sec...
Be sure to study & learn the "File-Actions-Split" functions
